This was Armenia’s first victory under new head coach Joaquín Caparrós.

With three points, Armenia currently sits third in the group, which also features North Macedonia, Georgia and Estonia.

“I congratulated our guys on the victory. Everyone played well. We have a very good team. We entered the field with only thoughts of victory. Now the team must prepare for the next game. The match is 90 minutes and it consists of different stages. I think that our team played balanced football in both halves,” Caparrós said after the match.

He also spoke about soccer player Vahan Bichakhchyan’s debut performance saying “The substitute players have upgraded our game. We can say that they entered the game well. Vahan is a talented guy and has a great future. Football players like him are the future of Armenian football.”
